    Nothing's wrong with it, we're just glad we can read it the first time we got an image.

    The bios don't seem to be very much like actual bios and more like whatever X has done to make Y and/or Z want to kill them.

    Not a thing. I was being serious.

    "With so few Autobots configured for off-road operations, Crankstart figured he'd be safe hiding on such a remote beach. He thought he could hide out here, keeping away boredom by randomly firing missiles at passing cruise ships. He never expected SEA SPRAY and BREACHER to come blazing right out of the ocean."

    Pure awesomeness.

    YUp, its a clever ruse to make the kids want the other toys that are named on the back so they can play out the stories.
    Unfortunatly kids don't think like that (but marketing adults do) HAsbros original packaging from G1 days was much more effective with the large battle scene showing lots of that years range and a little tech spec strip...I picked out most of the transformers I had from those pictures, ALways dissapointed to find out they weren't available in the UK

    Interesting Bio, although I am now more interested in what Breacher does to compliment Seaspray (since isn't the fact both of them are together when they find Seaspray the closest thing Hasbro has done to say "these two can combine!" or something of the like?)

    I agree. Bio's are good but showing the toys in a big action scene would be worth it's weight. After playing with a new transformer (and even though they all had the same image) I'd go back to the box and work out who was the next priority to get in my made up battles. Sure the kid might be content with any new figure off the shelf but if they lock their eyes on a big player from their own made up story, God help the parent that says "Not today".

    Ahh...the good ole days. It was always a treat for me when we got new box art battle scenes. I made sure to cut out each one and kept then on a bulletin board I had hanging n my bedroom wall. These were a couple of my faves:

    Gotta love a Decepticon who kills hundreds of people at a time due to boredom.

    Eh, I don't think it quite reaches "Jungle Bonecrusher" awesome, though. Taking out your anger by randomly destroying the rainforest is just A+ material.

    Nice bio, but I think I'll pass on the figure, itself. I already own two versions of this mold.
